Conversations with God

“Conversations with God” tells the true story of Neale Donald Walsch that inspired and changed the lives of millions worldwide. The journey begins after he unexpectedly breaks his neck in a car accident and loses his job. Soon after, we witness his transformation from your everyday guy to a homeless bum struggling just to stay alive.

But according to shri Kripalu ji Maharajji We are living in materialistically advanced
times. Technology is moving forward at a dizzying
pace. Many of you must remember what life was
like in the B.C. era. Before Computer era, when a
mouse was just a rodent; windows were something
no one liked cleaning; a virus was the flu; a
hard drive was a long trip on the road; a CD was a
bank account; a mouse pad was where a mouse
lived; cut-and-paste was something you did with
scissors and glue; a keyboard was a piano and a
program was just a TV show.
This is also a time of paradoxes. Cell
phones are being used more and more to send
text messages and to have conversations, but
sad to say, communication within the family is
breaking down. People are living in big homes,
but they have no space to accommodate their
own elderly parents. There are many time-saving
gadgets being used, but there seems to be no
time to discover the true meaning of life.
Children have more toys and entertaining games
than their parents and grandparents, yet they
complain of boredom. The world has become
very small due to affordable and efficient air
travel. People are travelling thousands of miles
away from home and making friends in other
countries, yet they have no idea who their
neighbour is. So many are living and dying in
isolation. If a man living alone breathes his last
in his apartment his neighbours will not even notice
him missing until the stench of the decaying
body becomes noticeable. Though living a life of
privilege, there is rampant use of drugs and
alcohol, both of which are used to escape reality.
Something is terribly wrong. It seems we have
paid a high cost for material advancement. The
price is spiritual progress.
To go forward we need to take a look back at
how our ancestors lived, for they can teach us
valuable lessons about life and living. What they
understood in the past is that to live a life of harmony
you must strike a balance between body
and soul. Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj
says hm do, hmar e do “We are two, therefore we
need two.” We are a combination of body and
soul, and therefore, we need both the world and
God. We must take care of both body and soul.
You have eyes, but you can’t see with them
unless there’s light. When darkness descends
and you are in a room without light you stumble
over the furniture. Why are you stumbling? Are
you blind? No, I am not blind, but there is no
light in the room. You put a blind man in a well-lit
room, and he also stumbles. There is light in the
room, but the man is blind. In order to see you
need both eyesight and light. In the very same
way, in order to live a life of harmony we need to
take care of both body and spirit
